Three Bald Puppies Found Abandoned Outside Vet's Practice In West Yorkshire
The RSPCA has rescued three bald puppies suffering from a serious skin disease, after they were dumped by their owner in West Yorkshire.
Thankfully, the authorities got there in time to save their lives and are now looking to get them healthy and eventually into a new home.
The dogs have since been named Albus, Winky, and Dobby (Harry Potter fans will get that reference) by their saviours.
Two of the puppies were abandoned outside the West Mount Vets in Halifax at around 5.30pm on 7 February by a man wearing a hoodie and tracksuit.
One week later, the third dog was found abandoned in the same place at around 5pm. The RSPCA believe that the same man dumped the last dog as the first two.
Local RSPCA branch administrator Gena Cameron said: "Their skin was so red and angry-looking when they first got here, but their fur has already started growing back at the base of their tails.
"It'll be some time until we're able to re-home them, but things are definitely going in the right direction.
"They were really nervous when they arrived and shaking.
"I'm so happy to say that they're improving every day."
Upon their discovery, the three Staffy-type puppies were taken to RSPCA Leeds, where they are continuing to receive treatment for their illness. That includes medication, as well as special baths to help assuage their hair loss.
RSPCA inspector Sarah Bagley said: "It's unbelievable that someone has dumped these puppies in this way, not once but twice.
"It's taken a long time for the mange to take hold like this, in fact, it's thought these puppies have probably had it for most of their lives."
She also expressed concern for other animals that may be in the care of the person who cruelly left these puppies.
Given the severity of the condition in which the puppies were found, she is right to be worried for the safety of any other creatures that the person owns.
However, the three dogs are now in the right place and getting the medical help they need.
The RSPCA has appealed for any information about the dogs, and the person who abandoned them.
Anyone who has any information can contact the society on its appeal line number: 0300 123 8018.
